Relaying comments from the 24th TIFF. (Part17)
Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF & TIFFCOM)
Tom Yoda
Q: Looking back the 24th TIFF, how do you feel as a chairman? Also,please tell us your ambitions for the 25th TIFF.
Tom Yoda (Chairman): Under the slogan of “Believe! The power of Films”, the 24th TIFF offered a variety of exciting premiere films.
Through the power of films, interactive exchanges, and information dissemination, we hope to make the TIFF a world-class event.
I think that the power of films is an enthusiasm or a belief that a person has.
That is why we must keep on thinking that we would definitely succeed again this year.
What is important to bring the 25th TIFF to a successful conclusion?
I would say it is films, especially films which reflect the film maker’s intentions strongly.
Also, since there is a great team spirit in TIFF, I am sure that the 25th TIFF will succeed.
The 25th anniversary will commerce from the very next morning after the 24th TIFF.
Let us keep on believing the power of films and the power of each one of us.
The Power of Films, NOW!
